Scouts' royal garden honour.

A GROUP of north scouts have pitched their tent in the Queen's back garden.

Scouts from the 82nd Newcastle Scout Group have descended on Windsor Great Park for an action packed week camping.

The youngsters will join more than 6000 other scouts and guides at Wings International Jamboree.

While there, the scouts will take part in many adventurous activities including caving, climbing, dinning with scouts from another country and also helping others on a community action day.

There will be more than 200 units attending Wings from the UK and many foreign countries such as Finland, Austria, Spain, United States of America, Ukraine, Norway, Kenya, Sweden and Nigeria.

One of the key parts of the week's programme is for participants to explore the Global Development Village, where they can find out more about other countries, as well as what they can do to make their own a better place.

During the week, the girl guides and scouts will make their way through 20,000 pints of milk, 8,000 loaves of bread, 9,600 toilet rolls, 80,000 biscuits, 60,000 hot drinks, and 6,000 black bin liners.
